Will Not Begin
With Train Ride
By LOIS SHAPIRO
Today is the day that thirteen!
thousand students pile intothe dusty
green coaches provided by the beni-
ficent railroad companies and start
off on their holidayrest. But it isn't
a rest from the minute they set foot
on the train.
If, for instance, one is taking the
special to Chicago with the plush
seats (more uncomfortable than any-
thing ever imagined), he knows that
he must get to the station about two
hours before train time to be sure
to have a place to put his coat and
hat. Once that is done, he begins
to roam the aisles to find someone
to drag into the diner with him. Up
and down the aisles he sways, bump-
ing into 10 or 12 other people who of'
course are going the opposite way.
Onto the next car, nd the next
car, and the next, ad infinitum, or
so it seems, he travels. Finally his
search is rewarded and he is confront-
ed by a pal who deigns to accompany
him to the diner to drink cokes. A1
pack of cards is taken along, "just
They reach the diner just in time
to snatch the last available table
from beneath the other fellow's nose.
Cokes are ordered, cigarettes are lit
and the session is on. This is at the
beginning of the train journey, but
even if we look in several hours later,
the situation is the same.
Now, however, the cards are in use
and there are more than two people
at the table. All attempts to skirt the
table to get into the next car are
foiled before they begin. Anyone who
might desire something to eat must be
content with the candy bars occa-
sionally called through the cars as
the tables in the diner are all so
crowded with coke-drinkers and card-
players, that service in the form of
food is an impossibility.
So the hungry travelers simply
tighten their belts and makestheir
way back resignedly to the other cars.
And when our friend finally decides
that his stop is almost upon him, he
breaks up the card game at the cru-
cial point (it would be!) and if he is
successful infiiding his coat, he is
really a lucky vacationer!

In a tour of the University Hospital,
conducted by Dorothy Ketcham, di-
rector of the Social Service depart-
ment, thistobserver paused in reflec-
tion on the ninth floor where thej
occupational therapy headquarters
This is the place where the occu-
pational therapist aids the patient in
adjustment to his new environment,
by weaving together the threads of
his life into a satisfactory pattern.
The occupational program is carried
out under medical supervision, ex-
plained Miss Ketcham.
"Occupational therapy," she com-
mented, "is primarily concerned with
the vocational and occupational in-
terests of both the young and old
patients. It involves the philosophy
of using all the capacities of the in-
Playrooms, schoolrooms, libraries
and recreational rooms compose part
of the equipment with which the oc-
cupational therapist at the Univer-
sity Hospital works, she stated.
Foremost among the qualifications
of a physical therapist, said Miss
Ketcham, is that of stability-as well
as a sincere liking for people. She
pointed out that "a college educa-
tion is encouraged as a pre-requisite
for occupational therapy because the
woman graduate has a broad grasp
and the basic equipment necessary
for success in this field."
"The American Occupational The-
rapy Association, which sets the
standards for the profession, strongly
recommends added study in a train-
ing school of occupational therapy,
Miss Ketcham added.
There are several schools in the
country, she related, where courses
are given in crafts, anatomy, design,
metal work, etc., which meet the de-
mands of the profession. "State re-
quirements must be met because pub-
lic funds are being used in many of
the hospitals," she disclosed.
"In the teaching division," she
mentioned, "there may be specialized
fields." While examining the school
rooms, she pointed out that they are
used for the children who are able to
come on their boards or in their
wheel chairs for short periods of in-
Each student continues his lessons
from the point where he left off be-
fore entering the hospital, she said.
"We attempt to reduce the difficul-
ties and-reach attainments as far as
we are able."
Miss Ketcham emphasized the need
for the occupational therapist to
bridge the gap of time, that the pa-
tient must spend in the instiution,
with the normal experiences which
he will again encounter on the out-
side. "Most of the patients," she
remarked, "will return to school or to
work within a year."
Enthused about the work accomp-
lished through Galen Funds derived
ro ;1the annual drive that was held
w .o w eek1s ago on campous, Miss Ket-
chami eagerly indicated that the
shop rooms and library are main-
tained by these proceeds. She ex-
plained that it is in these rooms .that
the occupational therapist is able to
constructively teach new vocations
and avocations adapted to the indi-

MERRIEST CHRISTMAS EVE
To Don Hats, Caps, Kerchiefs
Since that little drop of mercury
insists tpon hovering consistently
below freezing, even the hardiest are
putting their heads under cover, in
the shape of either hats, close-fit-
ting caps, or kerchiefs. Kerchiefs
rate high in popularity, but the knack
of wearing them without looking like
a refugee from the steerage presents
a real problem. I
Peasant-style kerchiefs are the ones
most frequently seen. They look gay
and pert if a girl lets her pompadour
and a few side-curls peek out.
It is when every hair is tucked
out of sight that that steerage look
appears. Scarves may vary from big
flowered squares to plain colored tri-
angles. The advantage of the square
is that when tied, one corner rests
on your top-curls. In case of rain
or snow this can be pulled up to
protect them more completely, but
the tips of the curls will still show to
flatter face contours.
Some girls can wear their scarves
turban-style with all their hair un-
derneath. The effect is stunning and
can be enhanced by earrings if the
turban is worn with a date-dress or
an evening dress. Hollywood says
you have to be a Crawford or Joan
Bennett type to carry this off suc-
cessfully. In that case, there are
stars among the campus women, for
To Hold Convention
Four members of the Sociological
Department of the University will
attend the American Sociological So-
ciety convention to be held in Chi-
cago during the Christmas holidays.
Professor Richard C. Fuller has
been appointed chairman of the Sec-
tion on Sociological Theory and So-
cial Problems. Professor Robert C.
Angell will also be present at the

about them. Chiffon that falls softly
about the face then extends on down
to waist or even knee length can be
worn gracefully by slender women,
tall or short.
The last word is inevitably, but in-
evitably about neatness. Pressed
scarves look so much nicer than those
that have weathered rain, snow, and
trips stuffed into pockets with no]
subsequent beauty aid from the iron.
